I had lunch today at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.  By doing so, I helped feed several people.  You can do the same until 8 tonight.  The Empty Bowls fundraiser allows you to taste delicious soups from several local eateries.  Your ticket price helps to raise money for the Food Bank, who can turn it into lots of meals for lots of people.

Artists from the pottery department at the Flint Institute of Arts donated hundreds of handmade bowls to the cause.  You get to pick one out and take it home with you.

In addition to great food and artwork, you'll enjoy live music, a tour of the Food Bank, and a chance to bid on several unique auction items.

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is located on Lapeer Road, about a half mile west of Dort Highway.

If you can't make it tonight, but would still like to help fight hunger in our area, contact the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.  www.fbem.org

By the way, the soup(s) are really good!  Tickets are just $15 at the door.
